Curtain Rods

She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates andsuitcases.

On the second day, she had to movers come and collect her things.

On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautifuldining room table by candlelight, put on some soft background musicand feasted on a pound of shrimp , a jar of caviar, and a bottle ofChardonnay.

When she had finished, she went into each and every room and depositeda few half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar, into the hollow of theCURTAIN RODS.>> > >>> > >She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss forthe first few days. Then slowly, the house began to smell.They tried everything; cleaning, mopping and airing the place out.>> > >>> > >Vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets were steam-cleaned.

>> > >>> > >

Air fresheners were hung everywhere.

>> > >>> > >

Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during whichthey had to move out for a few days and in the end they even paid toreplace the expensive wool carpeting.

Nothing worked. People stopped coming over to visit.Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit.

>> > >>> > >

Finally, they could not take the stench any longer, and decided to move.

>> > >>> > >

A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, theycould not find a buyer for their stinky house. Word got out, and eventuallyeven the local realtors refused to return their calls.

>> > >>> > >

Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank topurchase a new place.

>> > >>> > >

The ex-wife called wht man and asked how things were going.He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said thatshe missed her old home terribly and would be willing to reduce herdivorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back.

>> > >>> > >

Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed onthe price that was l/10th of what the house had been worth, but only ifshe were to sign the papers that very day.

>> > >>> > >

She agreed, and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperowrk.

>> > >>> > >

A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watchedthe moving company pack everything to take to their new home.....

>> > >>> > >

.....including the curtain rods.

I LOVE A HAPPY ENDING, DON'T YOU???
